Welcome to Carter & Fitch. We look forward to serving you!
Pizzeria - The Carter & Fitch pizza is a real Italian affair. Devour the Pizza Lungo 12” thin crust pizza, fresh from our Italian oven. The base is hand stretched using long ferment dough, resulting in a delicate crust. Topped with our very own secret sauce.
Smokehouse - All of our meats are from selected prime cuts, rubbed with our unique blend of spices and seasonings, infused overnight, then smoked in our Oklahoma smokehouse oven, low and slow over Mesquite, till meltingly tender.
Bar - Our fully stocked bar has something to wet every appetite from beer, spirits, wines, champagnes and cocktails. If you feel like throwing caution to the wind…ask your server about our new ‘Hard Shakes’. We even have a ‘Speak Easy’…Shhh, that’s our little secret!

We had a lovely meal but it was spoilt as we didn’t get the veg until my husband was nearly finished, apparently the chef dropped it on the floor, we would rather they told us what happened and asked us to wait a few more minutes, we were not told when they brought the meal out but we were, we did only pay for one meal but it spoilt the night.

The waiter bringing a Rose over on Valentine’s Day was a really nice finishing touch. Lovely food and lovely staff.

Lovely night, portion was small for the price you expect a little more, ordered pulled pork with dirty rice, tiny pot of dirty rice. Steak reasonably priced though.

Highly recommend the Sunday lunch sharing platter . Selection of meat - beef pork turkey and gammon ! Lovely roasts and vegetables including battered cauliflower mmmmmmm! Nice Yorkshire’s too and lashings of hot tasty meat gravy ( not granules)!

Weekday lunch menu isn’t great to be fair and very pricey. But stick to the Sunday lunch menu and you cannot go wrong!

Visited from Belfast with family who live local.
Staff were lovely. Had to send one cocktail back but staff remade it for us.
We wanted different cocktails On our next round but didn’t have any bubblegum syrup for the cocktails we wanted.
music wasn’t on constant so wasn’t really a good vibe like we’ve had before.

Carter and Fitch is pretty good, but we weren't told about the set New Year menu for £35 per head on booking. That meant a bill of £115 for the three of us without drinks. On asking the manager we were allowed to just order pizza, but was stuck in a table round the corner out of sight with little waiter contact. Other than that I've had good experiences of C&F. Maybe avoid New Years Eve.

We booked a table for New Year’s Eve so expected noise and slower then normal service.

When we arrived our table was not ready for us.
We stood waiting at the door 15 minutes.
We sat at the table for a further 10 minutes before anyone came over and explained that it was not the normal menu tonight.

This was not on the website, not on the Facebook page, no email or phone call from the restaurant to inform us. And no posters in and around restaurant or hotel.
The waiter apologised and said she’d see what she could do. But did not tell us or leave us a menu for what was on that evening. It wasn’t an issue but the service we received due to this change in menu was shocking.

The deal which was £35 per person all you can eat I assume - was not explained at all. So we opted for pizza’s each.

Which 2 of the 4 came burned. We got some chips they were not cooked! And we’re raw!

We waited 30 minutes for someone to take our drinks order and then a further 10 for someone to take our food order.

The wine came and we had to open the bottle ourselves.

A man came over to apologise and offer us a free drink but actually it all felt a bit pointless as he was again apologising for the menu change. We were upset with the service.

The reason we chose the pizza option was because no one explained the other option. And kept saying sorry about it.

It honestly felt like no one had a clue what was going on.

It’s a shame I have been to this restaurant a lot of times and have enjoyed many a lovely meal. This was a huge disappointment, we left earlier then we thought we would as we didn’t feel comfortable or welcome. And we left hungry!

We had booked a table. Ordered main courses only. Waited 55 minutes for food, were not approached by any staff to explain the long wait until we asked. Response was not very apologetic, just well we've got a group in another room.
Pizza was good, butternut squash dish good, salads fresh.

Overall, quite a nice experience, but we did feel the prices were a little steep for the type of food. We would go again, and now we know what the portion size is we can plan to be a little more thrifty.

The service was very poor. We had to wait for quite a while for a drinks order to be taken by this time we had already gone to the bar ourselves.
The food was ok but my partner got a rib eye steak which was not seasoned and he preferred my pizza to his steak which shows how bad it was!!! We would have complained but no staff returned to our table until we requested the bill from the bar! Will not be returning any time soon

My party had an overall poor experience. The staff were very friendly but rushed off their feet! The food was poor unfortunately. Two of the party chose chilli. It was so runny it was like soup! Really difficult to eat with a knife and fork. There wasn’t sufficient rice to go with the chilli so we asked for additional portions. This never arrived. We had to wait some time before staff came back to us to ask if we wanted to order dessert. As it was so late we had to skip dessert and order coffees. So disappointing! We will not be returning.

Soulless atmosphere, corporate culture, unispired cardboard vegetarian choice , every lager tasted of chemicals and metal . My wife and I were there as a couple for a romantic meal and were put in between travelling salesmen plugged into laptops , MP3 players , phones or all three in one case. Autopilot attention from staff . The worst restaurant I have been to in years . Clueless crap

I didn't enjoy the food, the pizza oven was broken so the kids couldn't have garlic bread as their starter and didn't like the other two options so only have 2 courses but still got charged for 3. There was a very limited choice of food as the proper menu didn't start til 6, I chose the steak pie which had more gravy than steak and only came on a plate with a dollop of potato and a gravy boat, no veg. Very over priced for what we got, we won't be returning.

Very disapppointed, Service was beyond poor. almost 25 minutes to seat us at a table which was empty when we went in, no-one greeted us to ask us if we had a booking, we had to approach staff after standing near the bar for 5 minutes without any contact. once seated we were given menus but not asked about drinks for another 5 minutes (which we were given free for our inconvenience). Food was satisfactory but further drinks orders were seen to be standing on the bar whilst staff chatted amongst themselves. the 'restaurant' itself is more like a diner / clubhouse than a traditional restaurant, with people coming in from the hotel & golfcourse and sitting at tables and seemingly being attended to quicker than ourselves.
we were not the only people to suffer as other people were complaining at other tables and like ourselves being given free drinks / sides as compensation.
Food was nothing spectacular but was nice enough, and servers were polite when at our table, however the place was not busy, so thee service should have been significantly better

We were a party of 4 adults & 2 children, service was ok until we had finished our main course. We then waited 45 minutes for the children to be served their desserts,& this was after asking 2 members of staff if there was a problem. Subsequently our bill was discounted by 15%.
The food was fine , & we will probably return but hopefully the service will be a little quicker.

The food was nice, however we waited 40minutes after receiving a desert menu before I went to the bar to order as no-one had been back to our table to take our order. After ordering at the bar we then waited 10minutes after receiving nothing and decided to instead go to the bar to pay and leave.

Service was absolutely terrible and the restaurant wasn’t busy.

Had Sunday lunch at about 4pm. Service was fine but food was awful. Meat was fine but veg was overcooked and dry, it had obviously been either reheated or kept under the heat lamps too long. Too be fair we were only charged for the wine after we complained and the manager apologized for the state of the food.

I was a little disappointed with the length of time we had to wait to be served and for the food to arrive, a little bit of slap dash attuite, but not rude. I live at the back of the hotel and have family coming the end of march a party of 10, we was planning to attend the restaurant on the Saturday evening I am a little concerned that the service will be the same. this has been the second time this has happened to on visiting your restaurant. The noise behind the bar was very loud and quite intrusive on our party, we where a group of 6 of mixed ages and we all of the same opinion. I don't want to sound negative but there seems to have been no improvement in many months, and feed back from my and family's visits over the last year has not been taken on board, Feed back is only good if action is taken. Food was general good no veg on offer was told we could have some but it would just be left overs ?? and yes it was left overs, fish and chip great steak pie good, barbeque chicken was terrible tasted like it had been blasted with some kind of chemical, sweets lovely. Value from money average. I would love to return as the décor lovely and great location. However I will have to think about taking the chance again.
Kind Regards

The food was very poor quality for the price we paid. The chips looked and tasted like frozen oven chips. We both ordered steak and had to ask for steak knives as they werent provided. We were either over charged or the cost of 2 glasses of wine and 1 diet coke was £27! The restaurant was quite busy and we had to wait quite a while for our food. We were told after ordering that a large group had just ordered so it might take some time. The tables are quite close together and we couldnt hear each other for the music.
